Carpet Cleaning Guide

No matter what the shape and size of your carpets or rugs are, they can easily become dirty due to continuous exposure to the elements, foot traffic, and pet hair.  Therefore, it is important to know how to clean them properly, so they will remain well-maintained and continue to be beautiful in your home.

Below are a few tips that you may find helpful:

  1. Choose how often you will clean your carpet. If you opt for cleaning your carpet once a year, it is advised to go and hire a carpet cleaning machine or buy one for yourself.
  2. Clean your carpet with cleaning solution. You can choose to clean your carpet with shampoo, but most professional cleaners use cleaning solutions specifically for carpet cleaning. All you have to do is spread the cleaning solution over the carpet, let it dry, and vacuum it up with a vacuum cleaner.
  3. Vacuum on a daily basis. This is a great way to clean your carpets regularly. While you are vacuuming, you will remove the dust, hair, and other dirt that lie along the surface and can be easily removed.
  4. Use steam cleaning.  This is a very effective cleaning method and works especially well when combined with other cleaning methods. Steam cleaning uses water vapor from a steam cleaning machine to help clean the deeper, hard to reach areas in the fibers of your carpet. With steam cleaning, you will be able to say goodbye to stubborn stains in no time.
  5. Use spot cleaning. It should be done first with clean water and a blotting cloth. But, if that isn’t successful, use stronger chemicals. It is a good idea to wear gloves and handle chemicals carefully when using this method.
